An Artist in His Studio by John Singer Sargent

Oil on canvas, 22 1/8 x 28 3/8 inches, 1904

I love the casual, intimate feeling of this painting. Sargent is painting his friend Ambrogio Raffele as he paints a landscape. The artwork seems like a truthful glimpse into the artist's life.

Our Capturing Realism opening was fantastic. Thank you so much everyone for coming out to the show and also for sending notes of support and encouragement. You can see pictures from the opening here on our Waichulis Studio Facebook page. If you are interested in seeing the exhibit, it will remain open until December 19th.
